Stock fuel pump or airdogII?

im having a problem with my airdogII that when i get to 1/4 tank i loose fuel pressure,pretty much from the fuel sloshing around in the tank..i cant just always plan on never running my truck that low on fuel it needs to be fixed.

or do you guys think mabye the pickup broke off in the tank n thats whats causing this problem?

so i was thinking about putting my stock pump back on. but i want my fuel pressure gauge hooked up. im curious if anyone knows where i would tap into to read my fuel pressure??

My truck may have developed the same issue. It has never done that before but as I was driving it home it was loosing fuel pressure. I installed the regulator update kit and cranked the regulator up on the ADII to no avail. I will fill it up when I get home and see what happens.

Well low fuel is not my problem but I'm sucking air from somewhere. I really don't want to drop my tank when it's full of fuel.
